LeBron James is about to say his final word, and the whole thing will end within a few days. The reported deadline will change everything, and many teams are hoping to land him. Did you notice the changes in the NBA title odds for the next year?
The Cleveland Cavaliers are hoping to keep The King, despite the fact that many put the Cavs out of the game. Everybody is just guessing LeBron’s decision, and nobody actually knows a thing about his next move in the NBA.
So, it seems like the Cavs are already preparing for a game without the Big LeBron.
In a Las Vegas book, the Cavaliers’ odds are boosted from 50-1 to 12-1. The Sixers went from 5-1 to 12-1, and Boston went from 5-1 to 4-1.
Did you notice Joel Embiid’s pitch? He hoped to attract LeBron’s attention with a few nice compliments. Well, yes, compliments always work, and LeBron sure enjoyed all the attention he can get. He’s a superstar after all, and it’s always good when other people recognize your ability. But, did this work?
We don’t really know what happened. The Cleveland Cavaliers will only win a title if LeBron James holds the ball in his hands. Collin Sexton makes a nice addition, but things won’t be the same without LeBron. He’s the best NBA player after all.
But, where will the king go? Every team on the list has a specific issue. The Los Angeles Lakers are looking for another star, and the Rockets are dealing with cap space issues. The 76ers are looking forward to ensure a balance of their roster, and the Celtics will have to make a few big moves.
The Lakers are still absolute favorites. LeBron went to high school in LA, and there are a few other details that confirm the bond. Should we add more?
